I'd really like to hear politicians who start blowing their WFA smoke in our faces get asked a question and a followup:

1) Name two specific examples each of fraud, of waste, and of abuse.

2) Since you know about these two instances, why haven't you eliminated them already?

Examples probably exist in the congressman's office, where the congressman himself is drawing sneak pay for being a legislator representing those who voted for him, when actually he is representing the lobbyists who pay his reelection expenses and other perqs. To expect a congressman to eliminate or even reduce something like this is less likely than expecting one to walk on water.
